What makes CAR COUNTRY unique is that also behind the mirrored wall, there are Vintage cars. Luis’ speciality is in restoring old cars to their former glory. At present Luis is working on a 1934 Aston Martin, a 1954 Jaguar MK7, and the Jaguar XK150. There is also a Lotus, a SL Mercedes, and pride of place is a 1972 Rolls Royce Cornice that has taken 5 years to restore.


“I love Rolls Royce”, says Luis. “When you strip a Rolls Royce you can see the quality. There is nothing on earth like it. I love British cars, they have more character”.


Luis, who is also a qualified Pilot, began the business with his wife Conchin in the summer of 1989 after finishing his Law studies. The business began by importing cars from Germany to meet an increasing local demand for better quality cars.


Now, 17 years later, CAR COUNTRY is a well established garage that is currently offering up to 25% discount on many common parts, and semi-synthetic oil is currently 4 euros per litre.


If it’s quality, dedication and all round knowledge at reasonable rates you are looking for then you should drive to CAR COUNTRY at Poeta Llorente, 202, in Pobla De Vallbona, at the east end of the village toward Valencia.
